By Anugrah Kumar

Defying a decree issued by the late Pope Shenouda III prohibiting members of the Coptic Church from visiting Jerusalem, Egyptian Copts are for the first time flying to the Holy Land in large numbers to celebrate Easter.

Obama Reflects on Jesus' Death, Resurrection in Easter Address

By Anugrah Kumar

President Barack Obama spoke about the significance of Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection in his own life and that of other Christians as he offered his greetings to all those celebrating Easter and Passover this weekend across the United States.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama rarely, if ever, agree on anything. But they and other top politicos are walking in unison when it comes to the issue of Augusta National Golf Club – the site of this weekend's PGA Masters Tournament – allowing women as members of the exclusive club.

At a time when homosexuality has become almost fully normalized in the U.S., one theologian is responding to the question of how the church should answer the challenge.

Christian author and apologist Lee Strobel had no reason to believe in God for most of his life as a skeptic and self-proclaimed atheist, he writes in his best-selling book, The Case for Christ, published 14 years ago.

Rick Warren Gives Easter Message in 3D?

By Alex Murashko

Perhaps the reason many people don't get excited about Easter is that they do not know the full meaning of Jesus' resurrection and are not viewing the holy day in "3D," said Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren during one of the first of his weekend service messages Friday.

The final countdown to Easter Sunday is here. Churches across the nation are putting the final touches on sermons, worship songs and preparation for large crowds on a day when many unchurched and dechurched decide to attend services.

Former Crystal Cathedral pastor Robert A. Schuller recently released an inspirational new memoir chronicling the "dark period" in his life when he left the California megachurch and how the challenge of being "down to nothing" taught him to put more trust in God.

Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, Wash., recently wrote in an editorial that Christians who rail against other believers for partaking in non-religious Easter traditions are comparable to "those who murdered Jesus."

Former Atheist Activist Patrick Greene Responds to Critics

By Jeff Schapiro

Patrick Greene was an outspoken atheist until recently, when the generosity of a few Christians caused him to reconsider his beliefs. He now says he is a Christian. But some people – atheists as well as Christians – aren't just taking him at his word, and are openly criticizing both Greene and his conversion.


How the Resurrection Undoes Our Need to Be Proven Right


Sometime before dawn on Sunday morning, a spike-torn hand twitched. A blood-crusted eyelid opened. God was not simply delivering Jesus (and with him all of us) from death.

Why Jesus Had to Die, Part 2

The most painful moment for Jesus was when He bore the sin of the world. This is what He recoiled from in Gethsemane


How Does Suffering 3 Hours on a Cross Deliver People From Eternity in Hell?


The answer is that the degree of suffering, indignity, reproach, degradation, and fall that Jesus endured is not simply determined temporally. And it's not simply determined by the exquisiteness of the pain of a nail cutting through a nerve in your wrist.

Go to Dark Gethsemane

Sometimes we picture Jesus far too serene. We imagine him in the garden praying rather stoically, "Not my will, but yours be done." But the mood at Gethsemane was anything but tranquil. Jesus was facing more than death or sadness. He was facing God-forsakeness.


In Pushing Homosexual Agenda Globally, Obama Admin Seeks to Co-opt, Marginalize Religion

obama clinton

Harnessing a "good religion vs. bad" theme to advance divisive social policy strikes a favored administration chord. Just as the White House has promoted ObamaCare's abortion pill/contraception mandate by using "Catholic" spokesmen such as Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Vice President Joe Biden to blunt Church disapproval.


What Are the Chances that Jesus' Corpse Was Left on the Cross?


With few exceptions, even the most skeptical scholars admit that Jesus was crucified—and with good reason. Not only Christian authors but also the Roman historian Tacitus mention the crucifixion of Jesus. It's highly unlikely that first-century Christians would have fabricated such a shameful fate for the founder of their faith.

How would Jesus rate GCB?

Kristin Chenoweth

Watching a whole episode of ABC's GCB, based on the book Good Christian B*tches, is like sitting through an hour of offensive blond jokes--only GCB is not funny. It mocks Christian women, stereotyping them as calculating, over-sexed, hypocritical, egotistical, silly and shallow.


Is Christianity Ready For The 21st Century?

I believe in the truth of the bible. There are some however who confuse truth of the Bible with truth of interpretation. There is a difference. We have had many truths of interpretation over the last 2000 years, some accepted as gospel and some not so much.


The Triumph of Greed

Ken Connor

Capitalism has become the blunt instrument of unrestrained greed. This is the spirit of social Darwinism run amok. Only the strong survive, while concern for one's neighbor or for "the common good" is pooh-poohed as weakness masquerading as altruism.


What Was Jesus' Best Day?

The Whip, Hammer and Cross

When we think about someone's "best day" we associate it with something good happening — a great adventure, a rewarding experience, or a joyous occasion. What was Jesus' best day?

A Holy Week Reflection

In Christian tradition, Holy Week retells the story that begins with Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and ends in Resurrection Sunday, or Easter. But it’s really more than just a revisiting of an ancient narrative. It’s an intensely theological journey that speaks deeply about God’s initiating work of love in and through Jesus, for the sake of the world.

A few months ago Patrick Greene was an atheist who was threatening to sue Henderson County, Texas, if the county didn't remove a Nativity scene from its courthouse lawn. Today he is a believer in Christ who underwent a radical change of heart that was catalyzed by the compassion of one Christian woman.


The Good Friday Fiasco is Utter Foolishness

India Good Friday protest

Let me see if I have this right. You Christians believe that the Son of God suffered and died on a cross 2000 years ago...and that somehow, this helps you get connected to your God. Yep. That's right. That is the teaching of the Bible. And is utter foolishness to the natural way of thinking about God.


Why the Blood of Jesus is Related to the Care of Our Body

How does the blood of Jesus relate to the care of your body and health? Jesus paid a high price for our lives and for our freedom from sin. As Christians, we're especially sensitive to this during Easter Week as we're reminded of what he went through in the hours before he was crucified on the on the cross and of the horrific death he experienced.
